Dear Friends of Parish Players,
Like all theaters in the country, we have closed our doors for the duration of the spring and for the first part of the summer. Like you, we regret this inevitable cost of helping to “flatten the curve.” Beyond this, we regret the loss of community unique to a theater space, and look forward to a resurgence of activity and community engagement as soon as sound health practices permit.
We will be revisiting our scheduled fall program on June 1st, and will let all our members know then about possible shows and auditions. We have cancelled the November production of our annual “Ten Minute Play Festival.” The lead time to select plays (we had over 450 submitted last year), and identify producers is simply too great to pull off a production this year.
In the meantime, please look for occasional Facebook and Zoom productions organized by various players. Samantha Davidson Green tackled an ambitious Facebook “live” production of Boccaccio’s “The Decameron,” and Faith Catlin brought an old favorite, “Spoon River Anthology” by Edgar Lee Masters, to life via Zoom. There are several online “shows” in the works. We will announce those via our Facebook page and in emails to the Parish Players list.
Thank you for your support of our “little theater on the hill.”
Stay safe and healthy.
Toni Egger and Perry Allison
